Some Do Like Polls….

SOME more SDLP Westminster candidates have been announced – and not many surprises. SDLP Deputy Leader Alasdair McDonnell is to stand in South Belfast against the UUP’s Martin Smith (or maybe Michael McGimpsey). In Upper Bann the SDLP is standing Dolores Kelly against David Trimble (UUP) and David Simpson (DUP), who might cause a major upset. Dominic Bradley will carry the can for the SDLP in Newry and Armagh if he loses to Sinn Fein’s Conor Murphy.

    Interesting set of no hope candidates for the SDLP. A party on its last legs by the looks of things. S.Belfast is safe Unionist. Newry/Armagh will go to SF. Their gain there will be off set by the Unionist victory in Fermanagh which is a cert.Upper Bann will be close but the DUP should shade it.

    Cant wait to see how Durkan tries to explain no nationalists at Westminster.

    God Save The Queen.
